Psychological perspectives on racism and prejudice: position paper

First published in 1997, this position paper aims to increase understanding of racism and prejudice among psychologists, policy makers and the public.

It discusses psychological theory, research and practice, identifying contributions to racism and prejudice that arise at societal, intergroup, interpersonal and intra-individual levels. The paper suggests some principles and processes through which psychology can contribute to processes of reconciliation, respect, and inclusiveness within a multicultural society. Government, institutions, groups and individuals are encouraged to apply these recommendations in working towards a fair and just multicultural society.
